Happy Birthday dear Weblog
Two years? Wow, where did they go? That’d what I’d like to know.
I think the older you get the faster time goes. Summers were endless as a child, weekends were not the fly-by-oh-look-it’s-monday-alreadys that they have now become.
When I first started this website it was to let off some steam, mainly the creative type. And then it became a chore, and then it became an outlet, and then it became a chore, and then it became a good place to have a laugh with old and new friends and so on and so forth. Now it’s kind of an amalgamation of all of those things and I regret that I can’t do it justice due to lack of time and energy.
Weblogging has become quite the phenomenon during the course of these two years and now every man and his dog have one. It doesn’t feel that special anymore. I feel slightly drowned out by all the others out there and this forces me to rethink my own. What am I doing that is so different? What am I offering that no one else is? Not much. I see a few people out there who are doing things differently, who can and do devote substantial amounts of effort to their weblogs. And it shows in the form of superb content. That’s what I’d like to do and I feel almost guilty that I’m not.
This is the point where I forget something. My aim was not to write for anyone but myself which seems a silly ambition to have on such a public forum and one that I’m not sticking to. All I wanted was some place to write and design really. I’m rethinking my blog philosophy.
But for now, thank you to everyone who has visited, commented, e-mailed with regards to and most of all inspired me. Things can only get better.
